If you love food as much as we do, then our guide to the best UK food festivals is just for you! Let’s start this delicious round-up with  The Great British Food Festival, one of the biggest food festivals starting this weekend. With 9 events across the country, it provides the perfect opportunity for a fun, foodie day out we thought you would love.

Today, we speak to the lovely team at the Great British Food Festival.

How did the festival start?

We love food and drink & great days out so we just decided to give it a whirl and to see what happened! Thankfully, the first couple were a really big success, we got the bug for running them and decided to push on to try and make them bigger and better. And that’s what we’ve been doing ever since!

How long has it been going on?

We’ve been running food and drink festivals since 2011 years now at different venues all around the country!

What are highlights of this year – artisan food & producers?

We have so much going on each day through the 9 festivals this year, including the exciting Men V Food and Cake off competitions where contestants have the chance of winning a Kenwood Spiralizer. We have some of the top local chefs coming to our festivals to perform chef demos to our guests, this is great news as we’ve secured contestants from Great British Bake Off, Luis Troyano and Val Stones. We also have so many artisan producers to tempt our guests with at all festivals. These range from the tastiest cheeses and meats to refreshing spirits, ciders and wines.
